Honestly, I’m sick of having to juggle my USB ports for charging. I don’t want to overtax my computer’s PSU by charging through my PC, and all my AC to USB chargers have only had one slot. So when I had my chance to get a longterm solution to my lack of charging ports I jumped at it with topvork’s 6-port charging station.
Between my phone, tablet, and Nintendo Switch I have a handful of devices I use throughout the day. So while 6-ports was a bit much for me personally, it’s reassuring that I could stack even more devices ontop of my usual load.

So let’s get down to hard tacks. You’ve got one 30W Power Delivery port for charging off of USB-C. This port is good for the Nintendo Switch and can take advantage of the fast charging from this port.
You’ve got one 18W Quick Charge USB port. Now bear in mind that some devices can’t properly take advantage of Quick Charge and Power Delivery ports. It depends on what particular hardware you’re using.
topvork advises not using the Power Delivery and Quick Charging ports at the same time or else you may experienced diminished charging speeds from both of them. But with 4 other USB ports to play with, this is far from the end of the world.
The remaining ports are 25W Q-Pulse USB ports. To be frank, Q-Pulse looks to be some proprietary technology from topvork and they’re opaque about the details with what it does. But according to their website, Q-Pulse technology is designed to prevent overheating, protect against short circuits, and provide other security features to keep your charging experience as safe as possible for both your home and your devices.
What the instructions don’t mention however, is exercising caution with extension cords. I opted to treat this like a power strip and plugged it directly into my wall. There’s nothing saying you can’t plug it into a power strip, but personally I don’t advise it as a matter of safety.
Ultimately the topvork 60W charging station does what it says on the tin. You get six ports for charging, 5 of them are USB and one USB-C. This isn’t the most high-end charging station on the market, but if you’re a savvy consumer looking for a midrange charging station just so you’re not juggling cords like I was, you can’t go wrong here.
